If you want to save the world, veganism isn’t the answer | Isabella Tree | Guardian
Veganism is rarely the answer unless the question is "how can I be more miserable and sanctimonious".

Jamie Oliver accused of cultural appropriation for 'jerk' rice | Metro News
On the plus side, this means that there's a product out there that has the word "PUNCHY" right next to a picture of his gurning fat-tongued mockney twat face.

Perfect Day: All the dairy you love, with none of the dairy cows. | Perfect Day
Interesting method of creating dairy products without the tedious necessity of putting corn into a cow and then squeezing milk out the other end. This will be useful when we go to space, but I still want to see herds of cattle on the cargo deck eventually.

Seagull falls into pot of curry, terrible puns ensue | The Poke

Scott And Scurvy (Idle Words)
Fascinating: "They had a theory of the disease that made sense, fit the evidence, but was utterly wrong". Also it turns out that there is exactly one application of lemon that is not automatically, infinitely improved by the substitution of lime.

The Blade Bone Inn: Restaurant Reviews | Trip Advisor
Probably the greatest management response of all time. We've all had customers like this. You can see them coming a mile off and you know that you're going to lose no matter what you do. Fortunately, this is what the right of reply function on Tripadvisor was designed for. I don't know about anyone else, but I'm strongly tempted to pop down to Reading for a steak.

picking on the poor for not being able to make the same food choices posh people do is worse than horse burgers
Loses coherence at the end, but the points about food sourcing and the fact that it's only possible if you're middle class are good points, and well made.

While we're on the subject: the middle-class austerity drive. No I have not and never have been in benefits-level poverty, but I know all about counting slices of bread and stretching leftovers out.

BBC News - 'Pink slime' lawsuit for Jamie Oliver, ABC and blogger
My arch-nemesis sued by some random bloke who lost his job at a carcass rendering factory, allegedly because Jamie dissed rendered carcasses. I have to admit I'm torn on this one. I don't care who loses as long as somebody does.

Can't dispute this. Even, reluctantly, must agree with the preference for unsmoked bacon in this singlular context. But grilled? demonstrates only that he's not frying it right. Nonetheless: want bacon sammich now.
